EU WANTS LAWS TO SHACKLE THE PRESS SO IT CAN HIDE ITS CORRUPTION – Reports are coming out that Brussels in pumping millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money into groups, such as ‘Hacked Off’ in an attempt to create legislation that will see an end to Freedom of the Press.
Since the much publicised debacle of the ‘Phone Hacking Scandal’ by the News of the World, now disbanded, and through the inquiry which led to the Leveson Report, many groups, such as ‘Hacked Off’ whose celebrity endorsement include Hugh Grant, there has been continued pressure on the Government to bring in legislation that will effectively stifle the Press.
Today it has been revealed that the European Commission has been secretly funnelling taxpayers’ money into the cause.
One group which wants to see full EU Regulatory Press control is that of Mediadem, whose mission statement is to ‘reclaim a free and independent media’. If this statement alone does not rock you to your very soul then consider carefully if such a move was ever to take place – no newspaper across the EU would be allow to report anything the EU didn’t like; effectively those running the EU could do exactly what they liked without anyone called them to book.
The EU Commission has already publicly stated that it wants a controlled press using a ‘moral compass’ regulated by the EU. What the EU Commission wants is new ‘national and Europe-wide regulatory powers against newspapers.’ That, translated into English means they want full control over what is printed and you can sum this up into just two words – Totalitarianism Dictatorship – or North Korea if that is easier to understand.
MP’s and MEP’s opposed to any such communistic move have already responded by say that any such move would simply allow Government and EU Officials free access to any corruptive practices without fear of public knowledge and prosecution.
“Given the scandals in the EU and revelations of its misappropriation of funding, it is no surprise that Europe wants to restrict the free press which can uncover its corruption.” Philip Davies, a Tory member of the Culture Select Committee
We have all long suspected that the EU wastes billions in taxpayers money each and every year and now there is clear evidence that they support organisations that want nothing more than to ensure that our rights and freedom are restricted; if that is not the creation of a communist regime I don’t know what is and this is something that we should never allow to happen.
